wrote a column in yesterday's "washington post" that said, quote, obama made an impassioned bid to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late, end quote. do you think then that there was ever a time line that was out there that he is not making or meeting at the moment? >> well, i'd love to be wrong but this is certainly the sentiment in town right now suggests nothing substantial is really going to occur in terms of background checks. it will be some watered down version of that if anything gets through at all. an argument could be made maybe this was inevitable and it wasn't going to work regardless, but it seemed that there was a window of opportunity right after the newtown massacre when the nra was back on its heels and the public opinion was really focused and it seemed that if things were brought to the congress right away then instead of studying it and allowing people to go home for the holidays, it's possible we would be in a better place than we are now. >> what's your thought about the time

hear what you are saying. but i'm talking about white house credibility. why that obama administration agenda stalled? is it because of the credibility issues? >> you know it is frustrating. you know businesses are not confident that what is coming out of washington -- all of the policymakers, white house and congress -- is something they did count on. this is the problem, they don't have confidence to invest back in their. and to know what their costs will be. you know businesses fundamentally take a multiyear time horizon in their planning, they don't know from -- when they don't know, as they don't know now what their costs will be because of government regulation, and taxiningation, y cannot plan, they cannot afford the risk of adding the jobs. liz: steve makes a great point, really, the white house saying spring break will slow job creation, come on, seriously? that is what they are saying is to blame? are you serious? come on. the medical device tax is going nowhere. there is little money now for infrastructure, $21 million verse what the president originally wanted. i think that

obama couldn't get climate change through a democratic congress a few years ago. the regulations on climate change are coming. everyone in washington is gearing up for us. people in congress, lobbyists. there could be court challenges, basically couldn't get it done through congress. so he will do it administratively through regulation. bill: environmentalists love this. >> yeah. bill: this is what they believe will reduce smog all over america. >> that's correct. bill: politically though, does it sell? >> i think it will be very difficult and here's why, bill. because there is some democrats from red states, also from oil and gas states, mary landrieu who is up for re-election in 2014. mark begich from alaska will be outspoken on this. and there will be effort on any climate change regulations that republicans and democrats will team up and try to overturn these regulations. now, it could pass the house, probably not the senate. and obama would veto it, that will put pressure on the white house especially when the economy is so fragile. i think the obama administration is going
